You know things are bad for the GOP when one of their own puts out a re-election advert demonstrating his close ties with the presidential hopeful. How bad do the republicans have it? Many pundits predict that the Democrats are going to decisively control the House in 2009 given the decreasing popularity of President Bush. There are even some Republicans who have made the shift to Senator Obama as demonstrated by republicansforobama.org, a well organized website that portrays a positive message without falling into the trap of hating John McCain. That cannot be said for dems4mccain.info who are your typical disillusioned Hillary clan trying all they can to disrupt an Obama victory in November.
I really don’t understand these kinds of people, how angry do you have to be to betray your own principles just to punish the Democratic Party. You have got to be pretty angry, I would like someone to do a comparison, if I do not do so at some point… count all the angry words on sites like hillaryis44.org and dems4mccain.info and compare them to other Obama sites like my own and you will notice the difference. We don’t hate, I know Senator Obama is not the perfect candidate but he supports many of the things that liberals care about like lower taxes for the “real” middle class, increased regulation, restoration of funding for NASA, the EPA, and many other essential organizations.
Obama supporters are better people for the most part, at least we don’t start up sites trying to divide the Democratic party. Anyway here is the campaign video by Senator Gordon Smith of Oregon:

Congratulations to whomever leaked this memo to Wikileaks; it highlights so many things about the McCain campaign that has been obfuscated by the MSM focusing on the race for the Democratic Nomination. You can find the full details of the memo on the right hand side under the download section and it should take approximately 10 seconds to download. The memo was written by S.Schmidt whom we all know as Steve Schmidt, a senior advisor to Senator McCain’s political campaign:
Continuing his raid on the top talent from President Bush’s 2004 reelection bid, Sen. John McCain has signed Steve Schmidt as a senior adviser to his presidential campaign-in-waiting.
“It’s a great honor to join Senator McCain’s team,” said Schmidt in a brief interview today.
John Weaver, McCain’s top political strategist, called Schmidt “simply the best,” adding: “If this were a baseball team, he’d bat in the number four slot.”
Schmidt will play a leading role in message development and strategy if — as is likely — McCain transitions from his current exploratory effort to a full-fledged presidential race.
Mr. Schmidt is your typical political consultant who knows how to play the game better than the politicians themselves. In an interview with pajamasmedia.com, he mentions his belief that the American voters are smart enough to not believe the democratic smear campaign against Senator John McCain regarding his Iraq comment: “”President Bush has talked about our staying [in Iraq ] for 50 years, maybe 100. We’ve been in Japan for 60 years, in South Korea for 50 years or so. That would be fine….”
That video is great except when you see passages from the Memo:
Simultaneously, our team has been testing new lines of attack through independent pro-Clinton communities on the Internet. Our hope is that our message here will spread by word-of-mouth. Our local community organizing has also been successful. We have organized dozens of “meet-ups” across the country for Clinton supporters, and we have used that time to stress the importance of punishing the DNC for choosing the undemocratically selected far-left Obama. At the moment, this is nothing more than a headache for the Obama campaign. With a greater commitment on your part, I hope to see it metastasize into something much more.
Now I know quite a few of these Hillary communities, which I try not to visit anymore, because of the hateful level of rhetoric on these sites has simply attained an incredible level of bitterness. Now let me float this idea… What if Senator McCain and his campaign are responsible for turning some Democrats away from the party come the general election? All they would need to do is insert a “Blame Obama” comment here and a deceitful statement there and before you know it, you would have makings of the Democratic Anti-Obama movement. It would be a brilliant strategy but totally hollow, empty and typically McCainish (my new word for the day). Anyone want to bet that one of these communities is http://www.hillaryis44.org ?

All credit for catching this goes to Jon Stewart but the GOP is really becoming predictable these days. They have finally picked up on the fact that the voters are looking for change and hope by finally adopting the word that it might increase their chances for a win, come the general election. Too bad they were caught out on this blatant attempt but it is funny none the less (look for the red underline).

That kind of rhymes is you say it in a certain way but all humor a side, I have to say I am utterly disgusted with the people at Hillaryis44.org. They justify their party splitting rhetoric as playing dirty in order to beat John McCain in the general election. Here is the most terrifying line from the latest post:
Democrats are losers too - they have lost their principles.
First of all, what kind of democrat/liberal would say that? For the last couple weeks, the owners of the site have been hammering away for the inclusion of the Florida and Michigan delegates. They blame the DNC, the tooth fairy and Santa Claus for not coming sooner this year but surprisingly they do not blame the parties in these respective states. They also state that Senator Obama doesn’t care about these states when he has made a point of saying that he realizes he will need to shore up support amongst working class white people and older folks. I could list all of the inconsistencies of the site but I would be writing for the next 25 years of my life. Senator Obama will sway some of these people which is why this whole electoral process is over and I really hope that the owners of the site will not be crying foul when the delegates are divided up evenly at the rules committee meeting. That situation being the best case scenario while the worst case for these supporters being that none of them are seated at all and Senator Obama wins the nomination.
I did a little research on the site and apparently it is run by Alex Rodriquez, a New York political shadow who is probably being paid by the Clinton campaign to turn her supporters against Senator Obama. Let us go with this thought here, this could be the Clinton end game if she is willing to wait till 2012 and Senator McCain’s eventual screw-up. After reading my recent Clinton book and McCain book I have come to realize why they are both such good friends… they are so much alike. They are both willing to do whatever it takes to move their careers ahead without any regard for the American people. Here is another crazy quote by NewMexicoFan (Commenter):
We have 50 states on this country and the Democrats in FL and MI should count Howard Dean should be fired. He should have known better than to appy the rules even harsher than they were written. We should have know from the YeHaa, that there was a problem.
This site really makes me angry because we are all supposed to be Democrats at the end of the day yet why are all of these people declaring they would rather support McCain? I guess if they would rather support McCain, they must be republicans in disguise because they would be supporting this guy:
I would urge some of the saner Hillary supporters, Liberals and people who find this kind of talk offensive to denounce this website and its owners so we can get on with putting the right kind of Democrat in the Whitehouse. (Please visit Wonk’s blog for more sordid details.)
